Juneteenth, Black Texans Favorite Holiday
I made a video for you about one of my favorite holidays, Juneteenth!
In this video you’ll learn:
- Why slavery ended so late for Texas
- Why Abraham Lincoln decided to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. (HINT: It wasn’t about freeing slaves, not really)
- The roots of racism weren’t really just about color.
